Welcome to the Southwest Political Report. This is a collaborative journalism/writing project (founded in September 2016) between Irene Sanchez and Matt Sedillo combining our passion for politics, journalism/writing, critical thinking, but above all social justice.
With the election of 2016 we see politics of the U.S. are now reflecting a reality where the demographic shifts and influence of those in the Southwest have spread across the country. This is the browning of America and the Latin@ Giant has awaken.
While we center the Southwest in what we focus on, we also write reflecting our own identities as working class, Chican@s, and news relevant to these times we live in and to the communities we care about.
